Telemach secures sports channels

Slovenian cable operator Telemach has struck a deal with sports broadcaster Ikomedio whereby it will retain the rights to air the latter’s existing Sportklub channels.

The company will also air two new Sportklub channels – Sportklub Prime and Sportklub HD – in the near future. SBB-owned Telemach has also secured the exclusive rights to the Golfklub channel, which will also be made available in HD soon.

The Sportklub channels include rights to Spanish First Division and English Premier League football, Euroleague baskeball, and various tennis, hockey and golf tournaments.

The latest deal will give Telemach rights to air seven SD (Sportklub, Sportklub Plus, SK Prime, Sportklub 3, Sportklub 4, Sportklub 5 and Golfklub) and five HD channels (Sportklub HD, Sportklub Plus HD, SK Prime HD, Golfklub HD and SK Premium HD).
